Nicely written article at the Sydney Morning Herald. Heaps of haters in the comments. All I can say is …
Apple haters gonna hate, but to paraphrase that transfixing speech by Miranda Priestly (the incomparable Meryl Streep) in The Devil Wears Prada:
“That tablet / smartphone / laptop represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that proves your contempt of Apple when, in fact, you’re using a gadget that was created for you by the futuristic thoughts in Steve Job’s head from a pile of stuff.”
He inspired, he innovated, and he inflamed; all traits of a great leader.
Use Apples products or not, Steve Job’s influence is everywhere.
